Creating an Ice Cream Sundae
Ingredients: The basic ingredients in ice cream are cream, milk, sugar, and flavoring. All of these ingredients are mixed together and frozen to create the desired texture and flavor. Freezing: To freeze the ice cream, a special machine known as an ice cream maker is used. This machine churns the ice cream mixture while cooling it at the same time. This creates the smooth and creamy texture of the ice cream. Flavorings: Ice cream can be flavored with a variety of ingredients. Common flavorings include chocolate, vanilla, fruit, and nuts. These flavorings are added to the ice cream mixture before freezing to give it its unique flavor.
